Never Mind the Sex Pistols, Minutemen were the true punk rock greats. They started as a basic three-chord punk trio, and soon became one of the most clever and influential punk bands ever. I have always been more partial to the L.A. punk scene, including X, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and The Plugz among others, but the minutemen avoided all Punk cliches and invented their own style of aggressive and politically-fueled rock. With D. Boon's frenetic guitar picking, Mike Watt's funky bass rhythms, and George Hurley's entirely unorthodox drum technique, Minutemen forged an undying legacy within the history of popular music. And this documentary is one of the best things I've ever watched, the rise and untimely fall of one of rock's greatest bands ever.
